Good bets for nice, affordable senior stays include Sandals Whitehouse European Village and Spa in Negril, Jamaica, where you can book a room for about $220 a night, or the adults-only Secrets St. James in Montego Bay, which you book for about $182 a night.
You can also stay at the Iberostar Paraíso del Mar in Riviera Maya, Mexico, which costs just a little more than $200 a night. This particular resort isn’t adults-only, but the Riviera Maya itself is the older man’s alternative to Cancun, so you can bet on a tranquil stay.
50plus Expeditions specializes in running international seniors-only trips that are definitely affordable. Take, for example, their $1,700 five-day trip to Nepal, where seniors visit the shrine of Buddha, take an elephant safari and travel to the ancient city of Patan. Two domestic flights, all meals, transportation, guides and entrance fees are included.
They have a similarly sweet $1,500 five-day stint in the Amazon, a $1,700 10-day walking tour of England’s Lake District and a $2,600 13-day visit to Thailand.
You can also check out their 38-day Atlantic Odyssey of Antartica, price unlisted.
